In the latest episode of This Pardes Life, Rabba Yaffa Epstein and Rabbi Zvi Hirschfield discuss a midrash (Genesis Rabbah 8:5) that relates to the tension of perusing truth and perusing peace. Rabba Yaffa shares her own approach to the balance between objective and subjective truth and how many of us might gain by perusing personal meaning instead of trying to win arguments.
